On average, people download 0 apps/month. But if they do, they turn off notifications. It makes sense to enter apps that are already regularly used and highly popular: like WhatsApp.

Ads are expensive and impersonal Adds expensive

Ads are pricy and impersonal

Brands need to pay more €€€ than ever to acquire new customers with paid ads. This often means they lose money for every new customer. Also, ads via Meta have been weakened by iOS/cookies.

QUESTIONS?
ANSWERS. 

WhatsApp is new to many brands. To minimize your risk, here are some answers to common questions from our team of experts.

How much does WhatsApp cost?

Small businesses can use the WhatsApp Business app, which is free.

Medium to large businesses use the WhatsApp Business Platform (API) through a WhatsApp Business Solution Provider (BSP) like charles.

For the WhatsApp API, you pay:
1. WhatsApp a cost per conversation (see WhatsApp costs for your country)
2. WhatsApp BSP fees 

What's key to remember: WhatsApp comes with additional costs to channels like email, but it's worth the investment because it's highly profitable. The average return on campaign spend (ROCS) made by our clients is 10x. This is far above the 3-4x made by ads.  

 

For more, see our guide to WhatsApp costs.

Is WhatsApp going to be a profitable channel?

The profitability of WhatsApp marketing in particular is unbeatable. This is largely because of the high visibility of WhatsApp notifications and the way it allows businesses to sit right beside people’s friends. Even with its extra cost per conversation, we see 10x return on ad spend (ROAS) on average. With ads earning just 2-4x ROAS, many of our clients are now shifting ad budgets to WhatsApp.

Can I stay GDPR compliant? 

Yes, businesses can be GDPR compliant in WhatsApp. The 2 main areas to look at are:
1. Data consent (double opt-in, unsubscribe visible...)
2. Data management (ability to share and delete customer information, data stored in the EU...)

 

At charles, we help you remain GDPR compliant in WhatsApp through our software capabilities and our expertise. 

 

See more in: WhatsApp and GDPR: the basics for businesses.

Will WhatsApp take over email?

Successful marketing strategies rely on channels working together – and WhatsApp is no different so it should compliment your existing strategy.

 

For example, use WhatsApp for exclusive, pre-sale campaigns and email for the bulk announcement. In fact, brands that add WhatsApp to email see a CLV uplift of 25% vs email only.

 

See more in: Email vs WhatsApp: which marketing channel is better? 

What's the implementation and day-to-day like?

It takes less work than most people think.

 

Many enterprise customers partner with an agency like chatmarks who takes the workload away from the team by defining, setting up and rolling out your full WhatsApp strategy.

 

If you do it in-house, onboarding can take as little as 1-2 hours – thanks to automation, careful planning and efficiency tips from charles.
